The selection is an interesting book, although I didn't really like America the main character. There is also a love triangle. The situation she was in was interesting and I liked reading about the other contestants. The story brought me into their world. ( )

I, surprisingly, really loved it!!!

Some background: I had a friend where I used to live before, and she really liked this series. I wanted to read it too, since that cover is beautiful, have you not seen it!?!?!? Anyway, my mother saw her with them, and after some discussion, found out what they were about. This incident happened around 4-5 years ago, so maybe my mom was fully justified, but she told me I should not read books like that, and that I wouldn't like them.......clearly, she had not known what one of my favourite tropes and tastes would turn out to be.

So I was really not eager to read this, but then I rediscovered this, and I wanted to find out what exactly it was about this that is so intriguing??(this was after I read the synopsis) And, here I am, having read the book, to tell you it is absolutely worth it.......provided your tastes include romance, love triangles, competitions, a prince, and dresses.......

So, one of my main bones to pick with this was: why on earth is her name America?!?!?!?! Seriously?!?!? Nothing else?!!?!? Also, I find Aspen to be a very confusing character; in the beginning of the book, I was all for him, but by the time she meets Maxon, I was completely smitten (with Maxon. Who else did you think?) I'm pretty sure she'll end up with Maxon, and I really want her to end up with Maxon.

Another thing I didn't like, if technology is so developed that there are live telecasts (I'm pretty sure they were live telecasts, sorry if I'm wrong), televisions, airplanes with tv, and even portable phones(which was quite a bit later in the story than I would have liked), why do the common, and uncommon, people not have them?!!?!? Even the ones, twos, and threes don't have them.

I really liked Marlee in the beginning, but I'm really suspicious of her now, and am mostly sure that she's up to no good.

All in all, it was a wonderful read, and really what I was in the mood for right now. I recommend it to anyone who likes romance, competitions (sadly without any bloodshed), princes and royal families, girls as main characters, and does not mind the name America Singer. (she sings too) ( )

When I read all the "it's like the Bachelor meets the Hunger Games" comparisons, I thought, that seems silly, that can't be right. Not only was it completely accurate, but it worked. I could get all critical and do a pretty solid side by side of all the similarities but frankly, I admire the honesty of the main character and now I kind of want someone to dress me up in pretty clothes and what have you. Looking forward to reading the rest of the series as soon as they drop in price on Kindle :) ( )

I think I found a new favourite...

I can't with this book. When all is well, Kiera Cass throws me under the bus again and again. I started out the book thinking "oh Aspen is my new book boyfriend", then Maxon comes in and I'm like "oh hello there you handsome boy". And THEN all of a sudden I'm torn between the two. If you couldn't tell this book has a love triangle in it and I am living for it!

In summary, Illéa is a place where castes exist. You can very well be a two or a three or, the worst one yet, an eight. America is a five and grew up in a family of artists. However, a competition is taking place as the book develops. A prince that wants to marry one of thirty five beautiful girls. In here there are no castes, no status. America has a secret that only she knows about, but when something happens that turns her life upside down, that secret siezes to exist... at least for now.

The characters are something else... and I absolutely love America! She is funny, careless and loving. Her only goal is to help her family out and that gets her far. Far enough that makes her fall in love with someone she thought she could never love.

I wish I could describe this book as well as The Selection made me feel but no words can be put into this review that would even get close to what it really is.

However, if you love dystopian and the bachelor, then you need to read this! ( )

Oh my god yes yes. I really hope she will make the right choice! I cannot wait to read the rest! I also can’t wait to read more about the queen! ( )
